Business, Enterprise and Digital Learning

Business Studies 

Our curriculum aims to inspire our students to have successful careers in their chosen business profession. Throughout the course, students will study a range of theories and business models in depth and explore how these apply in real world situations. Students will enhance their future employability by applying their knowledge and offering solutions to many challenges faced by businesses today. 

Students will develop a range of qualitative and quantitative skills throughout the course and will maintain currency with today’s changing business environment.  

Business Studies encourages students to evaluate decisions made by business leaders in the past, understand how they inform current entrepreneurs, and begin to conceptualise what the future business world will look like with themselves as the next generation of consumers, CEOs, and change makers. 

Enterprise and Marketing

This year we have the opportunity to offer students a Cambridge National Award in Enterprise and Marketing. Students on this course will be learning the principals of Business Studies through a more practical application, aiming to equip students with the skills needed to potentially start their own businesses in the future. The assessment is a combination coursework (60%) and exam (40%) units with two pieces of coursework completed over years 10 and 11, and one exam taken in year 11. This is a rigorous course that can enable students to study business further at either college or 6th form, students will be able to access both Level 3 BTEC or A-level.
